Ben Mathewson has been a vital part of the North Avenue Capital team for nearly 2.5 years as a Commercial Lender, working out of the NAC Nevada office. After completing his service to the United States Air Force as a Finance Officer, Ben was presented with the opportunity to pursue his dream of entrepreneurship. NAC is unlike traditional lending firms, as the nature of the company is set up to be one of self-lead growth to result in team-growth.
“My position and daily duties are akin to owning one’s own business. Hard work and agility are rewarded.” -Ben Mathewson, NAC Commercial Lender
North Avenue Capital has carefully chosen a team of Operation Specialists, Financial Engineers, Originators, and more, some that have decades of experience in sourcing, underwriting, and closing USDA loans. “We work virtually.
NAC prides itself in its commitment to helping rural businesses survive and thrive through the USDA B&I Program. Ben works with the team of Architect and Lenders to close deals nationwide, and all the while continuing to meet the NAC mission to honor God through excellence, integrity, and growth as stewards of capital, influence, and people.
Working with the USDA to close loans to give back to communities in rural America hit a cord with Ben as he was searching for the perfect career fit. Born and raised in a small town in Nebraska, Ben knew first-hand the boom and bust that comes to a small, rural community.
“A missed rain, a hail storm, another company leaving: these can all have severe and lasting impacts on rural businesses,” Ben remarks regarding the sensitivity of rural America. At NAC, Ben gets to be a part of the great American story by providing capital and pursuing opportunities that others cannot. “Our capital creates ripples; we help job-creating businesses to grow and to put food on the plates of hundreds of families.”
